Blowing up a zx2
This motor was out of a junk yard zx2. It was having a hard time starting.
Exhaust gasses were flowing in the
coolant over pressurizing it, and in the end oil was in the coolant as
well. We tried to destroy it using bleach in the oil and reving to 9k
eventually pinning the needle at what I can assume is close to 10k. It
didn't blow, and the car still starts. New motor is in the shop being
ZX2 S/R vs Honda Civic SI
This is a video of race #3 at Byron Dragway against the honda civic SI...
Had a better launch even though i bogged it a little bit... car pulls
really well in 1st in 2nd... But HORRIBLE in 3rd... don't know why
So i thought i raced pretty well but my times were absolutely horibble. I
had 3 runs... I have an S/R with obviously iceman intake with K&N filter,
2.5" Borla Exhaust, ZXtuner Hotshot
header, and Powders UDP... With all this i was hoping to break 15.0 but
would've been happy with 15.0
So first run...
R/T ... .285
60 ... 2.441
330 ... 6.891
1/8 ... 10.575
MPH ... 66.44
1000 ... 13.728
1/4 ... 16.408
MPH ... 84.47
2nd run... launched the best... couldn't put the car in 3rd for like a half
a second... but wouldve been my fastest run.
R/T ... .121
60 ... 2.387
330 ... 7.039
1/8 ... 10.751
MPH ... 66.59
1000 ... 13.887
1/4 ... 16.553
MPH ... 83.88
3rd run... I raced a honda civic Si... killed him with my launch, but he
pulled away after 2nd gear... Raced perfect on this one except i bogged it
just a little bit in the beginning on the launch
R/T ... .157
60 ... 2.544
330 ... 7.075
1/8 ... 10.762
MPH ... 66.51
1000 ... 13.913
1/4 ... 16.589
MPH ... 84.67
ANy ideas on what could help me a little bit? i need to check my plugs and
wires... but anything else that anyone could think of that might improve my
time? I have a fully built motor and turbo just need the accessories... but i want to
see how fast i can get this thing with bolt ons first...

My ZX2, 2nd pass on track
My 2nd run at the track. Better reaction time. Better time in the 1/4.
Happy with the run for the 2nd time I ran on a track. Got a good base to
start from. Car is basically stock. Cold air, header and 2.5in piping.

My son is now driving this car, so in order to drive it he has to help fix
it. He did a great job too. Getting the wrong part really makes getting job
done quickly impossible! lol
How To Change Temperature Switch And Thermostat 1998 Ford Escort ZX2
This is a DIY video showing how to fix a temperature gauge that wont read
in a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2, In the video i change the temperature switch and
replace the thermostat. The cause was originally believed to be the
temperature sending unit on top of the thermostat housing but after
replacing that it made no change so i decided to try the temperature switch
underneath the thermostat housing and that seemed to do the trick. The car
was running and no matter how long or how warm it got the gauge never
changed and always read below cold. I couldn't find any DIY's or youtube
videos or forums about how to change the temperature switch so i decided to
try something and turns out it worked for me, hope this is helpful, i
figure i saved about six or seven hundred dollars by doing this myself it
cost about sixty for all the parts and only took about an hour if that.
